Cow Creek Ranch is an historic fly fishing guest ranch in the mountains of Pecos, New Mexico, just outside of Santa Fe, offering exclusive ranch and facilities rental for special events and occasions, family reunions, and corporate retreats. With 4 1/2 miles of stream and seven mountain lakes on the property, the ranch offers some of the best quality waters to fly fish in New Mexico. </img> </img> This Orvis Endorsed angler’s paradise is teeming with trophy rainbows, browns, brookies, and cutthroat – making this one of New Mexico’s best kept secrets. A well-nurtured natural fishery yields trout averaging 16″- 20″ in size, with the 2013 record measuring in at 29″. All fishing on the ranch is catch-and-release barbless hook fly fishing.
